      I think LA is a deserted place or I must have posted this under a deserted post. Hmmm! I am going to cut and paste this some where else.

      Disneyland is in Anaheim, south of Los Angeles. In my opinion it would be too strenuous a day to drive there, visit and drive back to your hotel in Los Angeles. I would stay at one of the hotels at Disneyland. I would rent a car there and see other parts of S. California: Newport/Balboa is so pretty, any of the string of Spanish Colonial missions are a must. Called the Rosario, the 14 missions stretch from the south to the north. San Juan Capistrano is in the south. You could drive to Palm Springs for the day and have a date milkshake. Bypass Los Angeles and go to Santa Barbara, Santa Ynez, and Solvang (a charming Danish community.)
      Actually, skip Los Angeles altogether and drive up the Pacific Coast Highway. Stay at the Post Ranch Inn. See Muir Woods across the bay from San Francisco (DO THIS WITHOUT FAIL). Visit Carmel-by-the-Sea, And check out Big Sur. Fly back out of San Francisco.

      Have fun!

      Tip 20% in restaurants and taxis— unless you go to The French Laundry fancy restaurant–then do a little more. Visit Napa if you are interested.

        Thank you very much! Love the bit – Skip LA altogether— 😆
        Really this is a big help. We are a bit nervous. Hope we wouldn’t get confused with Left hand and right hand driving.

      Sorry, Dee, my reply to you must’ve disappeared.

      I’m not a local (D.S.G. sounds like she is, or was once, or visits frequently, though she sounds very much more proNoCA than SoCA 😛 ) — but I can say

      – you want a car with good GPS. That’s a must!

      – if you decide to do Napa Valley, that’s a full day, generally more, especially if you plan to drive from LA.

      – if you’re into “new” culture, the MOCA and the Getty museums are kind of awesome. They’re not the Guggenheim, or MOMA, it’s a very different vibe, but you’ll see things there you won’t see anywhere else.

      – Palm Springs is about two hours from LA in good traffic if you feel like you *just must* spa.

      – if you can get a reservation at Spago, get the duck sausage pizza or pasta (or whatever seasonal thing the servers are recommending). No gawking if Ashton or Demi or Becks or Posh (or Roger if he’s there to see the L.A. Galaxy before his part of the Asian tour kicks in 😀 ) walks in.

      – watch those “little expenditures” at the Rodeo Drive boutiques. A little here, and a little there, and you add it up at the end of the week, and you’ve spent … far too much.

      Have a great time!

        Thanks M! We really want to see Disney land and Universal studios. Rest is just relaxing so we might have to hire a car.Shopping sounds good.Hmmm!I am so excited!Thanks for your help.

        DSG is not and never has been a resident of California. When she was young she used to visit her aunt and uncle …

        By all means hire a car and driver if it’s at all possible. I’m thinking that having to drive on the wrong side of the road in California freeway traffic might be dangerous. It was difficult for me to get the gist of driving in small towns (and roundabouts!) in England. I would NEVER try to drive in London. Roadsigns, everything, is different and sometimes you can be distracted for a split second and think you’re back on your own side of the road.

        Matthew Broderick (married to Sarah jessica Parker) caused a fatal car accident in-I believe it was-Ireland many years ago. The fault was put down to being unfamiliar with driving on the “wrong” side of the road.
